Starbucks Event 2012

Last week Women for Rwanda partnered up with Starbucks to sell Starbucks coffee and products both at Hult House on John Street, and at Hult Russel Square. All coffee and products were donated by Starbucks on Southampton Row.

Overall, the day was a success! Not only did the students and faculty at Hult get to enjoy great coffee in the midst of their finals week, but Women for Rwanda gained further recognition within the student community. Thanks to Starbucks’ generous involvement, all money made in the coffee sale will directly go to Women for Rwanda.

International Women’s Day

This spring, on International Women’s Day, March 8th, Women for Rwanda walked through London with Million Women Rise demanding to end male violence against women. Million Women Rise is a London-based coalition, which organized its first Women’s Day march in 2008. The theme this year was The Girl Child, and the featured color was purple. Purple is the color of mourning in Rwanda, thus, our group wore our purple t-shirts to bring recognition to Rwandan women, and to support all women around the world in their struggle against violence.

Together we can end male violence.
